Jackie McNamara is convinced Wes Foderingham wants to quit Rangers this summer after a season on the sidelines.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the Celtic legend and ex-Dundee United and Partick Thistle manager explained why the Englishman, 28, will not want to be kicking his heels as Allan McGregor’s number two again next campaign.
Foderingham has made just six appearances for the Gers this season after losing his number one spot to summer-of-2018 signing McGregor.
Assessing Rangers’ summer transfer needs, McGregor highlighted the need for a new keeper in the likely event of Foderingham ending his four-year association with the club.
“They need at least another centre-back, a left back, again their goalie situation with McGregor and Foderingham,” McNamara told Football Insider.
“I imagine Foderingham wants to leave and they’ll want to get another goalkeeper in to challenge McGregor.”
The keeper was signed by ex-Gers manager Mark Warburton from Swindon Town in 2015 on a free transfer and has made 136 appearances for the club, conceding 142 goals with 51 clean sheets.
He is out of contract in the summer of 2020 and has the chance to showcase his talents to suitors in Sunday’s Old Firm as he prepares for a return to the side with McGregor serving a suspension following his red card against Hibernian last weekend.
As revealed by Football Insider, Rangers have set their sights on signing St. Johnstone keeper Zander Clarke as they look to overhaul their keeping department.
